When we finished exhibiting ‘Norfolk Coke and Tar Co.’ O gauge layout – rather than selling it, my Son John took it over as a home layout.
Well things move on, and after discussions we have decided to put it back on the circuit with a change of name and different stock. The layout was industrial steam, and it will remain steam, but it will become a London Underground Depot. It will now be called ‘Grub Lane’.
Some minor changes will be needed for clearance purposes, lighting replaced and possibly a small extension to the fiddle yard. Main motive power will be three Dapol 57XX LU Tanks along with a variety of LU/BR sixties rolling stock. It will move a bit more towards a shunting plank and slightly less of a stabling point.
This is a short cut to an exhibition layout – but a real change of direction – watch this space!
